Tools For Schools

Build-a-Backpack

Program Overview

Tools For Schools Team Building Program Logo

Tools for Schools program is a fun, interactive, and productive corporate charity work event that will not only bring your team closer together but will unite them toward a common goal of helping your local community.School supplies can be expensive, especially for middle and high school students. The Tools for Schools program provides an easy way for your team to help make a difference in your own community. This hands-on corporate charity work event challenges your teams to fill a backpack with vital school supplies, including notebooks, pencils, erasers, and more.

But it’s not as easy as picking up the items and putting them in the bag – your teams need to earn their items through creative mental and physical team challenges that require teamwork, effective communication, and a willingness to roll up their sleeves and get involved. With so many different ways to have fun and earn supplies for the kid’s backpacks, there’s something for everyone on every team to do. 

And because we purchase all of the school materials used to make these kits directly from B2SI, a nonprofit whose mission is to create and support educational opportunities that enrich the lives of children, you will also be making a financial contribution to them in addition to the physical donation you make to local students.

The group can only be successful by working together, communicating effectively, identifying strengths of team members, and focusing on their mission – helping the children.
